Abstract

The radiologic abnormalities in a patient with mild clinical manifestations of fat embolism are reported. The findings consisted of small nodular opacities, which were shown on computed tomography (CT) scans to be located predominantly in the centrilobular and subpleural regions. The nodules presumably represented alveolar edema or hemorrhage secondary to the fat embolism syndrome.
